 boinc (5.10.8-1) unstable; urgency=low
   [ Frank S. Thomas ]
   * New upstream release.
     - Fixed wrong CPU information on alpha, hppa, ia64, ppc and sparc.
       (closes: #406853)
     - Use i686-pc-linux-gnu as alternative platform name for
       x86_64-pc-linux-gnu to get i386 binaries on amd64. (closes: #366741)
       Hence all traces to our own mechanism to override the platform name on
       amd64 have been removed:
       - debian/patches/001_amd64_disable_platform_reset.patch
       - debian/extra/
       - the associated paragraph from debian/boinc-client.README.Debian
   * Updated boinc_client's, boinc_cmd's and boincmgr's manual pages for the
     new release.
   * debian/boinc-client.{init,default}: Use two dashes for boinc_client's
     command line options instead of one because that is it's default now.
   * debian/boinc-client.postinst: Use "[ ... ] && [ ... ]" instead of
     "[ ... -a ... ]" because these constructs are much easier to read.
   * debian/boinc-client.preinst: Use dpkg-query instead of poking directly
     into the dpkg status file. See this thread for more information:
   * debian/conffiles/{cc_config.xml,global_prefs_override.xml}: Added comments
     which explain the purpose of each configuration file and which contain
     URLs to upstream documentation for each of them.
   * debian/copyright:
     - State that the source code is obtained via Subversion (and not via CVS)
       and added a pointer to debian/README.Debian-source.
     - Updated for the new release.
   * Added /usr/share/bug/boinc-client/script which pastes boinc-client's
     init script configuration file (/etc/default/boinc-client) into bug
     reports because this might be helpful for debugging.
   * extra/bash/boinc: Added bash completion for boinc_client and boinc_cmd.
   * debian/rules:
     - Don't ignore $(MAKE) distclean errors to make lintian happy.
     - Install unstripped versions of boinc_client, boinc_cmd and boincmgr
       and let dh_strip do this job for us. Now building BOINC with
       DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS="nostrip" actually does what it should do.
   * debian/patches/: Added 002_remove_hardcoded_optimization.patch to remove
     hardcoded compiler flags from client/ and to make debian/rules
     the only place again where compiler flags are defined.
     (probably closes: #427661)
   * New boinc-dbg package added to provide debugging symbols for BOINC
   * debian/boinc-dev.{install,links}:
     - Don't install lib/common_defs.h manually, "make install" does this now.
     - Create a symlink in /usr/share/boinc-dev/lib/ to the new str_util.h.
   [ Steffen Moeller ]
   * Smallish changes to Debian READMEs and man pages.
   [ Debconf translations ]
   * Added Portuguese (pt.po) by Miguel Figueiredo <elmig at>.
     (closes: #428278)
